Santa Baby Was Good To Me!
Digitrax DCS 51
It's official, the layout has gone digital. Though DC was fun, playing keep-away by only using the turnouts...:
...but it's time to start implementing realistic operation. So DCC it is!
To make a quick connect/disconnect between the command station and layout I purchased these XLR Connectors. They seem able to handle any maximum amperage the command station should dish out.
Under the layout shot. The female XLR Connector was mounted to a small project box and then wired to the layout. The male in-line XLR Connector was wired to a 16awg 3 conductor cord (positive, negative, neutral) which is wired to the Command Station.
.We are now DCC ready. Yes sir! DCC ready!
